Only the 74 was a dog. Notbecause it was a II but because it ran like a dog.

First Mustang was a car of convenience. '79 4 banger with broken turbocharger. Broken car, but was impressed with how well it actually ran. Became a Mustang fan. Paid $300. This became a testament to how well Ford's are built.
Second car, after I gave the '79 back to the original owner because it would not pass smog (go figure), was a '71 Grande with 315C 4V and Mach1 drive train. It is now apparent that Ford knows what it is doing, Duh.

Mine was a grey/blue color. Used to dream it was a Cyclone.

My RR had steam roller rears, I think they were biased ply 60 series or what ever the widest made was. Those with the Dana 60 steered me into a few curbs. 8O

Now you're making me think. Since I started driving in 1995:
1 - 1983 Mustang GLX convertible (3.8L auto, first car, $3k, sold after three 3.8L engines, currently a 5.0L 5-speed)
2 - 1983 Capri RS (5.0L 4-speed SROD, $800, borrowed T-5 when SROD died, gave entire car to the lender of the T-5 because I didn't want to take it out)
3 - 1984 Mustang LX (2.3L auto, $250, couldn't do 70 downhill, blew black chunks out the tailpipe, paint peeling off. Drove for 8 months and gave it away.)
4 - 1992 Mustang LX convertible (2.3L 5-speed, $4k maybe, traded for car #7)
5 - 1986 Capri (5.0L 5-speed, $1000, abused. Swapped new T-5 + exhaust, painted with parts from car #8, sold for $1000 - not sure why)
6 - 1987 Mustang LX (2.3L auto, parts car, free, never ran, left on property for my uncle to deal with when I moved)
7 - 1988 Mustang GT (5.0L 5-speed, car #3 + $1k, a few mods - first project/mod car. Traded even-up for car #10)
8 - 1983 Capri RS (5.0L 5-speed, $300, parts car, never ran. Needed body parts - closer inspection showed 4-cyl T-5 and a locked up engine due to *no* oil pump driveshaft)
9 - 1985 Mustang GT (5.0L auto, $2500. Auto was a dog, CFI engine, had valvetrain issues, but great body, low mileage, beautiful 85 GT interior. Sold for $2000)
10 - 1990 Mustang LX (5.0L 5-speed, trade for car #7. Installed new T-5, motor mounts. Sold for $1000 - again, not sure why).
11 - 1997 Mustang Cobra (4.6L DOHC 5-speed, $17k in 2002 with 24k miles on the clock. Still stock + TriAx shifter, sleeping in a garage 400 miles away)
Some of the non-Mustangs I've owned:
198x Camaro 305 - bought for $1500 after I caved in the whole quarter panel (extending to the roofline) with Car #5 (which was unharmed) in a stupid stunt in a parking lot. To my credit, the crowd cheered. Never drove it, traded it to a painter for the paint job on Car #5.
1988 Cavalier Z24 (2.8L auto) - good little car... only car I ever wrecked though (I see a pattern with these Chevy's). The ticket said "Meeting a vehicle in the opposing direction." I hit a full-size Ford van. The van laughed.
1988 Probe GT (2.2L? turbo 5-speed - fun car, bought for $800, sold for $800 after a couple years. Can you say torque steer?)
1991 Thunderbird S/C (3.8L supercharged 5-speed - real fun car, luxury and speed in one. Sold because it was a PITA to work on... miss it now, though)
1995 Eclipse GSX (2.0L turbo AWD 5-speed - needy but fun... goes great in the snow. The Eclipse guys are pissed cause I bought one just for a winter beater, but oh well Still have this one, currently my only available car)
2001 Ninja ZX-6e (first bike, fun little toy. Everyone that rode it dropped it, but me. Last friend slid it killed all the plastic, sold it to him)
2003 Ninja ZX-12R (big bike, scary fast... still have it)
I think that's it... enough after 12 years. Most of mine have been cheap beaters, but they've all been fun in their own little ways.
